Our Dog Days month continues as we break down who almost starred in the ridiculous musical Burlesque! Which Oscar-winner did Christina Aguilera want for Nikki? Which Twilight-actor was considered for Jack? And does this movie know what burlesque even is?? Also – we debate whether Alan Cumming was digitally inserted into the movie and Jeff gives a dramatic reading of the lyrics to Jack’s dumb, dumb song: Show Me How You Burlesque!


Burlesque stars Christina Aguilera, Cher, Stanley Tucci, Cam Gigandet, Eric Dane, Julianne Hough, Peter Gallagher, Kristen Bell, Dianna Agron, Glynn Turman, David Walton, Terrence Jenkins, and Alan Cumming; directed by Steve Antin
